Cyr Wheel.jpg

Acrobatic disciple derived from the German Wheel invented by Quebecer Daniel Cyr, cofounder of Cirque Éloize and composed of a simple metal circle in which the acrobat moves. Using his own impetus, he is able to turn unceasingly while executing acrobatics. As opposed to the German Wheel, the Cyr Wheel's structure allows more fluidity in the rotations, which accents the dynamism of the discipline.
